Sonata Arctica, los emos del power metal...

Poder, guitarras, doble pedal y ...¿corazones rotos?

Si señores, eso es en lo que se resumen las letras de la banda que todos amamos, Sonata Arctica.
Practicamente el 90 % de sus canciones hablan de corazones rotos, gente pendeja que no sabe amar, personas que se odian y se aman, heridas auto-inducidas y todo tipo de emotividades de ese tipo.

Claro, nadie esta exento de todo eso en la vida, pero escuchar esto dentro de una cancion de power metal, -donde casi todo trata de batallas epicas, caballeros, fuego y armageddon, el cosmos dentro de la mente y puertas de atras; es bastante extraño.


Por supuesto no es malo escuchar una tematica diferente dentro de un genero bastante estereotipado con cosas epicas y .... mm bueno las cosas epicas.

Solo basta con escuchar canciones como Letter to Danna:

Now I know someone else's holding you,
so, for the first time in my life - I must lie
Lie's a sin, mess that I am in,
Love is not the thing I feel know

O algunas mas auto-destructivas como Don't Say a Word:

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you lie
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Settling the score, we pass the twilight...

Y algunas de gente que no logra conseguir el amor, por culpa de la pena y su falta de seguridad, como Shy, del disco Takatalvi:

I can see how you are beautiful, can you feel my eyes on you,
I'm shy and turn my head away
Working late in diner Citylite, I see that you get home alright
Make sure that you can't see me, hoping you will see me

Sometimes I'm Wondering why you look me and you blink your eye
You can't be acting like my Dana
I see you in Citylite diner serving all those meals and then
I see reflection of me in your eye, oh please

Lo bueno de todo esto es que suscanciones y sus discos son como novelas y nos cuentan una historia de amor y desamor que acaba en casi siempre una terrible tragedia, dejandonos un mensaje bastante ambiguo y sangriento:
¿Amor es para sufrir o para gozar y es siempre lo suficientemente intenso para llegar a los extremos?

The Ruins Of My Life

  The land was then young, I was fighting for it like everyone.
Ready to die for the cause, for my King, for my Lord.

You were my reason to live, to fight another day.
You were the only one for me, and you were only for me.

Another year I would be gone.
The war was leading us so far apart.
I built a house to keep you there.
Waiting for me, waiting...

No one remembers my face nor my name,
In a dream, I'd stay here forever.
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain....
All these wounds only heal when I'm home.

The Taste of their blood in my mouth, and the scent of victory.
Scarred my soul for life, this man was not me.

Love is a game for the weak to play, they said.
I loved and love made me many times stronger.

Another year I would be gone.
The war was leading us so far apart.
I built a house to keep you there.
Waiting for me, waiting...

No one remembers my face nor my name,
In a dream, I'd stay here forever.
Headstone on my grave, words carved in vain....
All these wounds only heal when I'm home.

"Everything ends...Everything dies...
Now I know the Legends only lived in his lies"

My long and winding road, river and trees by the hills we lived on.
The ruins of my life I find, a signet ring on the ashes, I know my Lord betrayed me,
my reason to live was taken away.
I carry my loved one to the hills we loved, for the last time...

I close your eyes, kiss you goodbye.
The only one who ever loved me.
I'm crushed inside, darling, my life...It shall end here..

Headstone on your grave, words carved in vain...Now the darkness covers me...
